SC11 Just One Week Away; Great Content Planned for IBTA & OFA Booth #6010
With less than two weeks until SC11, there’s lots of buzz around the forthcoming November release of the TOP500 list. Will Japan’s K supercomputer stay at the top? Where will China’s Sunway Bluelight place? How many systems with GPUs will we see?
The TOP500 list plays into SC11’s unofficial theme of Big Data. Nicole Hemsoth of HPCwire, released an article last week providing highlights of what you can expect to see at SC11. Nicole sites John Johnson, conference chair, who says that this year the supercomputing community is “being called upon to rise to the data challenge and develop methods for dealing with the exponential growth of data and strategies for analyzing and storing large data sets.”
Nicole goes on to highlight a number of presentations and sessions being given at SC11 focused on the problems and new developments spawned by Big Data and technical or scientific computing.
The technical working groups of the IBTA and OFA are all about addressing the problems and new developments spawned by data challenges in high performance computing - and translating those technologies into meaningful solutions for the enterprise data center.
We have joined forces with several member companies as well as SC11’s SCinet and Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) and will be showcasing a “world’s first” demonstration of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) protocols over a 40 Gbps WAN. Watch here for more details to be released this Monday, Nov. 14.
We will also be featuring presentations from member companies on a full range of topics detailed on this site.
Be sure to add the IBTA/OFA #6010 to your list of must-see booths at the show and watch this space for live updates from the show.
